Cannot install Firmware for HP EF0600FARNA harddisk

Hello,

 

i have a server proliant ml350 g6 with hp array 410i.

the smh reports an error with the firmware of my harddisk.

 

disk1: HP EF0600FARNA Firmware: HPD2

disk2: HP EF0600FATFF Firmware: HPD2

 

When I try this firmware:

RECOMMENDED * Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - EF0300FARMU, EF0450FARMV, EF0600FARNA drives

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=MTX_31469220e6194408b6b6d713d6

 

error:

The software will not be installed on this system because the required hardware is not present in the system or the software/firmware doesn't apply to this system.  
There were no devices found that could be loaded with the ROM Image.

 

What can I do, because I thing that this is the correct software?

is the problem from the fact, that i have two different types of harddisk?

 

greetings dutch

Hello,

 

does the P410i Smart Array Controller has a cache module installed? Online HDD firmware upgrade is only supported if a

 

cache module is present. What's the current firmware version on the P410i?

 

Best regards, Joern.

Re: Cannot install Firmware for HP EF0600FARNA harddisk

If you boot the server, you will see the smart array message during POST. If in this line is something like (256MB - see example; 1GB cache module) this is the indicator for the cache module. You can see this also from ACU.

For an offline update just boot the SPP - www.hp.com/go/spp
